Big-ass hole

Location: North Merrimon Avenue, Asheville, North Carolina. Parking lot of a bicycle shop. Second time, apparently, that this has happened. I couldn’t get a shot looking all the way in (I was too chicken to go past the yellow tape), but they say it’s about twenty feet deep. So where does all that soil go?

Yasir Arafat = “family”?

I’m a bit behind on my news, but this is really interesting.  Thanks to Fausto and Mark on the Feast of Fools I discovered this story on

“A medical report from the French hospital where Yasir Arafat passed away in 2004 reveals that the late Palestinian leader actually died of AIDS, ending years of speculation that the cause of death was assassination.”

While Arafat was ill, according to the Jewish Press, there was some speculation that he was gay and dying of AIDS.”

I don’t wish to perpetuate the negative association of AIDS with homosexuality, but this is interesting.  I wasn’t aware of speculation regarding Arafat’s sexuality before or after he died, but death from AIDS sure does support the notion.

Homosexuality is strictly forbidden by Islam so it will be interesting to see how Islamic culture “deals” with this latest revelation.  I don’t think anything will come of it other than the French and Americans being accused of perverting the death of a major world and Islamic leader — but if he was gay or bisexual, too bad he couldn’t have lived a happy and open lifestyle.

What do you think?

Kevin Michael: Great Music

This guy can sing! I picked up his first single some time ago – We All Want the Same Thing – and have enjoyed listening to it over and over again. This past Tuesday he released another single – It Don’t Make Any Difference To Me – that pleases just as much as the first.

It Don’t Make Any Difference To Me | We All Want the Same Thing

Kevin Michael

Not only does the music sound great, but there is actually great messages hidden in his lyrics. We all want the same thing — don’t we? It don’t make any difference — should it? And those are just the song titles…Kevin Michael is going to be a hit! I can’t wait for his full album release! You’ve got to check this guy out and at least give it a preview. If you don’t have iTunes, check out his web page and click on the audio player at the top of the page.
